Todd Whisson, Queensland. Oils.
Artists are encouraged in this workshop to explore and express loose spontaneous mark making reflective of their own personality. You will be guided on how to paint landscapes and seascapes with dramatic skies or mountains, trees with incredible colour and water that is vibrant.
The process will consist of artists being guided by a step-by-step demonstration, learning Todd’s unique approach on simplification with a palette knife to describe subjects, colour and edges.
The spirit of this workshop is for artists to develop skills in a relaxed friendly supportive atmosphere.
Todd will be demonstrating in oil however artists are welcome to paint in either oil or acrylic paint.
Open to all comers 18 years and over.
Todd Whisson is a successful Australian Modern Impressionist Artist whose work is uninhibited yet connected, which has emerged from his passion for plein air and alla prima painting.
In 2011 Whisson embarked on a tertiary education into contemporary art through TAFE Qld. Whisson was awarded the highest achievement of acquisition prize, for his first and second-year series “Hidden Secrets” and “Scar Tissue” whilst completing his Diploma of Visual Arts.
Continuing his education, Todd completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2015 through QCA (Griffith University), achieving academic excellence along the way. In addition, Whisson was individually selected by Brisbane City Council to showcase his work as a representative of QCA graduates in painting.
Whisson’s recent work has developed markedly; taking an abstract approach which continues to reflect his skill in traditional techniques yet has enabled him to communicate more than a visual representation and has elevated his passion and vision to another level of skill and perception.
Whisson’s work is represented in galleries, private and corporate collections in Australia and internationally.
